Steve has been working with SMEs at Finance Director level for the last 15 years and at senior finance level since 1997. He has worked for a broad spectrum of companies in Distribution, Manufacturing and Consultancy in industries ranging from plumbing supplies to Commercial Catering Equipment. Steve has consistently overseen company growth and the implementation of key controls and processes. These businesses have ranged from family owned organisations through to subsidiaries of multinational groups which have required adherence to tight reporting deadlines and international accounting standards.
During his career Steve has had considerable exposure to many issues that an FD in a SME would expect to come across, not only financial but in HR, IT system implementation and control, along with responsibility for Health and safety as examples.
In his Board roles Steve has been involved with the strategic reviews of businesses and the implementation of strategic plans for growth and corporate financial recovery. A passionate team player and people person, Steve has the soft skills to integrate into and quickly add value to most organisations.
Outside work Steve is married with 2 grown up children. Steve enjoys watching and playing sport, especially golf which he’s hoping to play more of now the children have left home!
